To the English it’s Wolf’s Lair, to the Poles Wilczy Szaniec. Adolf Hitler, however, would have used the term Wolfschannze. Found deep in the Mazurian Lakes the Wolfschannze was Hitler’s largest wartime headquarters, as well his most notorious. It’s here he spent the longest amount of time – nearly 900 days in total – and it’s also on this site that Count Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg made his ill-fated attempt on the Fuhrer’s life. Today what remains of the Wolf’s Lair bunker complex is open to visitors, and is a must-see for anyone with a passing interest in modern history.
